You May be Surprised or Shocked
by this Video about Milk or,

Then again, if you are informed about the hazards of milk, especially homogenized, pasteurized, loaded with hormone and anti-biotic milk, this comes as no surprise.

I personally gave up drinking milk a long time ago. I do occasionally have some cheese or butter, but certainly not everyday.

I have several friends who have an allergy to dairy. This is beyond just lactose intolerance.  What about the proteins that are in the milk?

There are a lot of people who might have an issue with milk sensitivity and don’t even realize it. For a self experiment, I am going to avoid dairy for 3 weeks. That means cutting out cheese, yogurt, butter and all milk products. That means reading food labels carefully.

Personally, I haven’t had a glass of milk in over a decade. I haven’t missed it one bit.

There are much better and healthier sources of calcium:

  • leafy green vegetables
  • broccoli, kale, spinach
  • Salmon, sardines
  • Sesame seeds,
  • blackstrap molasses
  • corn tortillas
  • almonds
  • oranges

Milk is not the only source of calcium on the planet. This list of calcium containing foods contains some good healthy options.

Milk is certainly on the “Acidic” side of the alkaline diet chart.

Goat milk product are a better option for some people. Others are better off giving up milk and dairy altogether. Sometimes self experimentation is the best way to figure out just what is right for you.

Raw Goat Milk is slightly alkaline. Almond Milk is an excellent alkalizing choice. Almond milk also has much less chance of food allergy/sensitivity issues.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself
    or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without
    my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help reduce
    content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

    Food industry applications, both of pure lactose and lactose-containing dairy by-products, have markedly increased since the 1960s. For example, its bland flavor has lent to its use as a carrier and stabiliser of aromas and pharmaceutical products. Lactose is not added directly to many foods, because it is not sweet and its solubility is less than other sugars commonly used in food. Infant formula is a notable exception, where the addition of lactose is necessary to match the composition of human milk.`’;`

    Lactose is the main carbohydrate or sugar found in milk, and in varying quantities in dairy products made from milk including yoghurt, ice cream, soft cheeses and butter. Lactose (milk sugar) intolerance results from an inability to digest lactose in the small intestine.Back in the cave-days, the only time a person would ever ingest lactose would be when they were infants getting milk from their mothers. During their adult lives milk was never consumed. Only with the invention of agriculture has milk become readily available to adults. Lactose is unique in that only in milk does it exist as a free form, unattached to other molecules.,;:.

    I have never been tolerant of milk products..(had to figure this out by myself thru many years…Drs were pushing it at me before and after diagnosis of IBD…wonderful…so I suffered until adulthood…what about Yogurt these days? I have been trying it..but not in large amounts. I have tried to tell many people thru the years about milk…most don’t listen…can’t husband died of cancer at age of 48…the main staples in his died were dairy and meat….milk is for babies, baby calves, baby kittens,puppies etc… (they don’t drink milk after they mature a bit..Very interesting how the dairy business has become more and more greedy thru the years…and most still Drs don’t pay any attention…unreal and so sad….

    Milk is WONDERFUL for babies but only from our own species. Human babies should drink human mothers milk only.
    Cows milk is only for calves, not for humans. The dairy industry is selling lies and misleading information to line its’ own pockets; its’ about PROFIT at the expense of your health. Pasteurized Cows milk is way too full of acidity, protein and forms MUCOUS in our body.
    Want milk? make sesame, sunflower, hemp or almond milk…
    thats’ smartly natural and healthy!.
